Screenprinting Amy Winehouse

This half-term, introduce your young people to the world of screenprinting in this workshop with designer Georgia Bosson to design and screen print a tote bag inspired by the Amy: Beyond the Stage exhibition.

Suitable for School Years 7 – 9.

What to expect

Design and screen print a tote bag inspired by our Amy Winehouse exhibition.

Imagine that your product is to be featured in the Design Museum Shop and think about the colour, composition and iconography surrounding Amy Winehouse.

Discover some of the iconic imagery from the merchandise collections and learn about artists and designers who work in this way. Join a series of playful drawing exercises using Amy's music then watch a screen-printing demonstration and finally print your own product to display to your fellow participants.

Each participant will go home with a unique hand screen printed tote bag.
